Persistence Of Vision

Per­sis­tence Of Vision

Want to go to the world pre­miere of “Per­sis­tence of Vision” for free?

The doc­u­men­tary fol­lows the 30-year quest of ani­ma­tor Richard Williams to make his mas­ter­piece, The Thief and the Cob­bler — per­haps the great­est ani­mated film never made.

Spon­sor The Snipe, Vancouver’s news source for movies, music, comics and more, has two pairs of tick­ets to give away to the world pre­miere Thurs­day, Octo­ber 4 at this year’s Van­cou­ver Inter­na­tional Film Festival.

Best known for the ani­mated sequences of Who Framed Roger Rab­bit, Canadian-born British ani­ma­tor Williams saw the film wrested from his con­trol and sav­agely recut.

Kevin Schreck’s doc­u­men­tary pairs unre­leased scenes from Williams’ vir­tu­oso fairy­tale with hor­ror sto­ries of cre­ativ­ity falling prey to commerce.

To enter to win one of two pairs of tick­ets to the Octo­ber 4 pre­miere at 6 p.m. at Granville Cin­e­mas, let the online mag­a­zine know your favorite ani­mated fea­ture or car­toon of all time at The draw will be made at 9 a.m. PST on Wednes­day, Octo­ber 3.

Per­sis­tence of Vision is part of the 2012 Van­cou­ver Inter­na­tional Film Festival.
